I looked at the picture of the card the tups made for Kate for Mother's Day. It says "Things we love about you" and each kid wrote something like "she cares for us, she takes cares of us and our pets, she cooks for us".

But one of them wrote "We can tell her anything and know that it is safe with her".

Apparently they don't know the stuff Kate shares on twitter.

"We can tell her anything and know that it is safe with her" - that's
a red flag for me. On the surface, that's a very sweet thing to say.
But knowing TFW's personality the way we do, I'm afraid it is said
in a way that makes the children need to share everything, whether
they sincerely want to or not. Including what they do and see and
hear at Dad's house. That's not kindness, it's a condition of her
"ownership" of them. Remember: she's in charge, and that's
never gonna change.

And, bless their hearts, it is most certainly not safe with her,
because she shares indiscriminately.

A secret breakfast, eh? So...Kate didn't notice the cameras and 20 extra people in the kitchen? That's odd.

And her journey through motherhood has mostly been a ticket to places where she doesn't have to take the kids.

Stop it already, TLC.

teehee. Geez. I think some of Kate's fans must look a lot like that banjo kid from Deliverance.

Kate is a twit said...

BTW, in the short clip that TLC aired Friday night, you could see both the microwave and stove clocks while the kids were making breakfast. They both showed that it was after 11 o'clock.

So it was more like a brunch than a breakfast. Maybe that's the "secret".

AuntieAnn (#6), TFW admitted that she doesn't notice other
people, so perhaps that was the case with the camera crew
on the faux Mother's Day. Jon himself could've been in the
kitchen slicing pancakes with a pizza cutter, and she would've
been none the wiser. Tee hee!

#BESTOneYet #❤️8

Yeah right--like she doesn't know what time it's on. Milo even tweeted the time earlier today. Guess she's still not paying any attention to anything Milo's tweets.

But Lauren got another retweet!! Milo must be soooo jellus!!

&&&&&&&&&&&&

LOL!! Right. It's safe with her. That's why she posted a picture of the card that showed their feelings or sediments (sic) about her. Nice and private...

"A secret breakfast, eh? So...Kate didn't notice the cameras and 20 extra people in the kitchen? That's odd.:

&&&&&&&&&&&

Sure, AuntieAnn. It happens to me every weekend. The cooks come in, the crew (who is family) sets up the filming equipment and I never even notice because I'm too busy reading platitudes from Gladys who wants my rock hard bod. Then magically, mysteriously, a breakfast of French toast, eggs, bacon, home fries, juice and coffee appears at my door. I'm in my nightgown with my "girls" flopping around, but I never notice the camera zooming my bazooms.

Over In TWF's County: Yes, it's really hot and humid here, or as we pronounce "muggy" with our PA Dutch accent, "It's mucky out."
No mention of Kate's pool opening?

All the promotin' Milo's been doing, and it's Lauren who gets the retweets. Milo better watch out--seems like she's being replaced.

BTW Milo, it's EDT not EST.

Kate is a Twit, you are a great catcher! 11:00. I wonder if that was when she just rolled out of bed.

She looked crazy at the beach house standing there holding her plate with her fork and talking to the person beside the camera. Looked like she was trying to balance herself. When does she ever sit down and eat with the children?

What is she going to do when they FINALLY stop filming HER?

She will go off the deep end. Poor kids!

It smells of something very off, I agree. It's an odd thing for a kid to say and I bet the boy who doesn't see his dad wrote that one.

I agree. It's a strange thing for a child to think. They shouldn't know anything different. They shouldn't have any ideas a parent WOULDN'T keep their secrets.

Makes you wonder if the obsessed parental alienator tells them "Dad doesn't keep our secrets. You can't trust your father." Wouldn't put it past her.

How strange. The kids cannot go on social media yet Mady is running the bird's site? How will that work? Why did Shoka just get that lame blog? Oh brother. Someone needs to get a life.

TLC stinks said...

LOL. I knew this was filmed not at breakfast time. Cara's pancakes looked undercooked.

I,too believe she demands the kids spill ALL to her. In turn, they are entrusted to keep momma's secrets. It does give me the impression that she tells them they can only trust her.

TLC stinks said...

I wonder if the airplane shots were from their Mexico vacay?

Check out her Twtter...she's madly typing away. New photos. And Zorro has his own Instagram.

Teens will test the best us. Its a. "loose anything goes world".

Good lord again. Now Milo is telling Kate how to raise the kids. She's more than a loose cannon. I think that Kate should "recalibrate" her moral values before she attempts to impose her own on the kids, starting with always telling the truth no matter what, and stop harboring all that hate toward the kids' father. Children learn what they live, and what they see.

All This Is That said...

Everything is about Kate. All about Kate. Jon had absolutely nothing to do with raising the kids. I guess, though, when you're dead it's kind of hard to have any impact in the upbringing of your children. I wonder if they visit his grave.

All of these tweets..."I can't believe they are eleven...how did they grow up so fast, " etc. etc. Speaks volumes about the sheeple. What do they think kids do? De-age, like their mother?

100% YES! Stresses me out watching now! @TLC RT @JeanneKaye: @Kateplusmy8 Do you watch this&wonder how in the world you made it through? Lol

Stresses her out? Never having to worry about if the gas bill gets paid that month, or if it's more important to deal with the electric bill. Stresses her out to decide if she should take the limo or the train to get the $1,000 hair cut at an expensive NYC salon, and if she's going to have enough money in her purse for her weekly tanning sessions and spa treatments. That's stress, I tell you. Stress with a capital S.

I'm going outside to plant some impatiens. I can't read any more of her narcissistic garbage.

It seems like an attentive mother should know what their kids are going to be filming before agreeing to have the film crew over. This also begs the question were the kids left alone with the crew again?? Not very protective.

redbird said...

My goodness. Zorro has his own Instagram account? It is too late for that! Should of never gotten that poor bird in the first place, BUT since you did, you should of started the Instagram account right away and documented HIS memories, traditions, trials and LIFE so you could start making money off your new little ATM.

What if it got so popular that it had more followers than TFW on twitter? No bots, regular followers.

Bwahahahaha!!!

Here it's 89+ degrees F. Ugh. I want some spring, please! Never thought I would complain after this winter- well, actually, I knew I would, lol. I haven't even started planting anything since we have reseeded the grass- not the best growing conditions with the heat.Oh for a POOL- I am jellus.

TFW really is a douche! She must be home with the kids today because she is in a twitter feenzy. Manic tweeting is not very becoming to anyone.

I wonder if she can buy bots to follow Zorro's instagram account or if it will reflect her true number of fans.

Happy Mother's Day to all.


redbird said...

I am sure she can buy bots for Zorro's account. The bot company doesn't care as long as they make money.

Jon and Kate Plus 8 is on and I am getting sick. She is doing a book signing and a little girl told TFW that her favorite show was the one where they got the dogs. And TFW sat there with her hands intertwined together and told that little girl, You can HAVE THE DOGS. If your mother says you can have them, you can have them. And they all giggle. That is how bad she HATES those poor innocent dogs. And how she HATES being around her own children, unless a camera is there filming because that means she is going to get a paycheck.

She is the type of Mother that makes you thank the Good Lord in Heaven, DAILY that you have a GREAT MOM and not one like TFW.

getoftweeter said...

Does it not make you wonder why does the kids all have to watch TV in Kate bedroom? Sounds to me as if Kate only has cable or whatever in her room only. A real control freak. The other big screen TV is for DVD.

Now Kate advertises the special. Your a little late Kate. And no blog yet!

Well, if I watch K8, it will be when ratings don't count, besides the season finale of: Once upon A Time is on for 2 hours, before that I watch news,Ameicas Funniest Videos , later at 9 pm I watch Man From Uncle, then the news. Then maybe K8. Then maybe not! Since it will be on 4 more times.



HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO ALL YOU MOMS, STEPMOMS, & PET MOMS!

redbird said...

Jon looks so rough and down beaten on the couch on this episode. But compared from then and today, the difference is day and night. He is happy, has a girlfriend, still loves his kids, has a job/career.

I can't believe this. TFW forgot the cakes at the house, Jon had to drive to the house to get them, then he had to drive back because of something else she "forgot". Would she do that on purpose just to aggravate him? Yes, I wouldn't put it past her.

Looks like Kate's blown already and it wasn't even dinner time yet. I guess I'd have the same question for her, what did SHE do for HER mom this Mother's Day? Sounds like some big projection going on there. It's strange the way some things will just set her off.

If she ever does anything with these kids OUTSIDE that huge mansion she never tweets about it. I'm sorry for them if they're cooped up around the house for yet another birthday, yet another weekend. Don't they ever get out and do something simple like go out for pizza, play put put, go bowling, go for a hike, go speeding in the winter or to the lake or beach in the summer?

If they do, she doesn't tweet about it.

If this is really the lifestyle they lead, she is going to be in for a big surprise when they get older and flee the coop with friends all weekend.

redbird said...

Thanks, Admin, but I prefer Zofran for nausea.

Oh, my LORD! J and K is on now before I got a chance to turn the channel and she said that Discovery Place? in Florida, INVITED them to come down and swim with the dolphins! She said, yes, that for them that was such a right of passage for the kids.

I wonder how many kids parents could afford to go and do that right of passage for their kids?

She is so cruel to her kids and family and the public in general.

I'm not a big fan of when mothers like Milo and Kate, and others, act like this is a high holy day to worship his high holiness Saint Mother. Don't dare fall short of their expectations or there's hell to pay today or at least a lot of sulking.

You are a mother. Not Jesus. Or a martyr either.

Sorry kids you have to share your birthday with this nonsense.

She exploded on somebody who slammed her as a mother and demanded to know if they've attended to their own mother today. Why not just ignore it and grow up like other 40 year olds?

Yes, TFW, please share the details of how you honored your

considered his second mother. We're waiting for the scoop.
You can tell us anything and know that it is safe with us.

Just looked at Zorro's instagram, and was not impressed by the quality of the photos. One very dark, one a childish photoshop of an otherwise good photo, and one with a very busy background. Can anyone figure out the background in the oldest (busy-background) picture. It looks like two identical pictures, or something like that. My brain just can't parse it.

The thing about instagram is that it allows comments. I wonder when the non fans will find it and how busy Mady will be with moderating/comment removal.

--------------
It looks like it was taken in a pet store. The figure on his left is obviously Kate, long blond hair, and she's holding a purse over her arm. The background is shelves(you can see price stickers on the bottom ones) and the boxes behind Zorro look like fish aquariums.

It's most likely the pet store where she got Zorro. Didn't she say that the lady at the pet store took care of Zorro when they went to Maine? Could be the picture was taken when they picked him up or dropped him off.

No! It’s little kids Bday today so we celebrated Moms Day early 😉RT @schwegler_emily: @Kateplusmy8 did you film this episode today?

So how did they celebrate the tups birthday? By watching old episodes of the show, while their mother was twittering away. And now they're watching the new episode while their mother is twittering away, and playing "tweet that quote-get a follow".

Great way to spend a birthday, isn't it?

So the bird now has an account? Really? Who cares? I get most of my kate news here. I don't look at her twitter and I certainly won't look at a birds blog? posts? Whatever...I won't watch anything she's on...she makes me sick...really. Just hearing her voice makes me ill. She is a liar and a child and animal abuser. I have seen all I need to see that this woman is mentally ill and needs help. The kids are suffering and nothing is being done. I will not give her any attention,not even so I can snark on her. She is not worth my time.
I will however, post and post and post about what a POS she is. I don't care what the headline is...If it says kate gosselin...I will say she is a child and animal abuser.
It matters and counts if you watch. If there is an audience,it matters. Ratings can't tell if you are a fan or a non-fan.
Anyway...Why would she wish 6 kid's a happy b-day on line that they can't see is beyond me. None of the kids can touch social media right?

Took a peek during commercials of Once upon a time.

Kate is a bullshitter, who is trying to re-write history, her crap about the boys is crap, so is being a girl mom? and only caught a part of what she was saying about the critics, some BS that it does not bother her, well , it must or she would have not talked about it, then some fertility crap, mix in with why she is on TV, some ranting crap. Then saw a commercial for the Mexico vacation birthday, that will be on in June. Don't know if I will watch the whole thing, later.

Basicly a bunch of bullshit out of Kate and her trying to re-write history.

Oh, yeah, also caught the poor single mom speech doing it all herself bit, memories BS. I guess Kate forgot to mention, that if it were not for TLC, she would have never had all those over the top birthdays, trips, new bedrooms, etc. My her turning 40 she is very forgetful.

Another memememememeIIIIIIIIII episode of K8, staring Kate Gosselin, brought to you by TLC, the channel that brings you the greatest bullshit and trainwrecks on TV.

Someone asked if they filmed the Mother's Day episode today. Kate said that they celebrated Mother's Day early, because today is the tups birthday.

No! It’s little kids Bday today so we celebrated Moms Day early ��RT @schwegler_emily: @Kateplusmy8 did you film this episode today?

I called it! The magnanimous Kate took one for the team and celebrated Mother's Day early so it wouldn't interfere with their birthday.
She's so predictable and her sheep are just as gullible.

Just a general comment but reality on TLC has been getting MORE scripted, not less so, as the years go by.

I guess the scripted format is more economical. It makes more sense to have episode "ideas' before going in then set them up and film them than to roll cameras 7 days a week hoping something interesting will happen.

That said I find the scripted stuff almost unwatchable, no matter what the show. If I want scripted television there is spectacular programs out there to watch. I don't need to see amateurs acting with everything else out there.

I daresay the Gosselin shows is much more scripted than it used to be.

Another episode talking about "haters" again? Again? I don't get why TLC puts this self-serving trash forth as entertainment. It's bad enough Kate goes on the defensive at every turn, spewing on about how she simply doesn't care about haters, and Jon and Jon's girlfriends.
Of course, she protests too much.
But now it appears Mady has to do the same thing.

I don't watch TLC shows, so I wonder if any of their other "talent" keep going on and on about their haterz?

40 in March.

Didn't you know at least one of her fans would think the show was
filmed today? #Dolts

She is a broken record of about four talking points. One, her haters. Two, Jon and how everything is just FINE there's no problem on HER end and the martyrdom of single motherhood. Three, the kids and the boring dumb things they do and say that are no different than any other kid their age and in fact the way she tells it much more boring. Four, herself and whatever boring dumb thing she is doing, thinking or feeling she feels the need to explain for ten minutes.

She needs a new topic. Seriously, it's old.

Oh and Pioneer Woman has two new adorable puppies, goldens, and they're all over the couches and pillows and hanging out with the children IN THEIR HOUSE. You know, with their pack.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

I don't remember the Duggars seeming to really care what their critics think and they have critics. I believe them, they are confident in themselves and their life choices and really don't care what others think.

It goes back to maturity as so many things do with her. A 40 year old well adjusted woman doesn't care what her haters think. Like really doesn't care. She does though, because she's 12.

So the bird now has an account? Really? Who cares? I get most of my kate news here. I don't look at her twitter and I certainly won't look at a birds blog? posts? Whatever...I won't watch anything she's on...she makes me sick...really. Just hearing her voice makes me ill. She is a liar and a child and animal abuser. I have seen all I need to see that this woman is mentally ill and needs help. The kids are suffering and nothing is being done. I will not give her any attention,not even so I can snark on her. She is not worth my time.

&&&&&&&&&

This question is by no means a criticism, but if you don't care, if you won't watch, if you want nothing to do with this person and she makes you sick, then why would you waste your time reading here, posting here and commenting? Why would you read here to get the Kate "news?"

It would seem that if someone is so aggrieved as you seem to be, then why not just ignore Kate, TLC and everything associated with her and that channel? I don't understand.

Angie said...

Who 'celebrates' Mother's Day?
Ok, your kids might make you breakfast, give you a card and a gift, but after that, what are you supposed to do? How do you celebrate Mother's Day all day??
I think celebrating Mother's Day and a child's bday on the she day would make it extra special. But that's just me.
All I can say is WTF

Admin (#85), not only would a mature 40-year-old, well-adjusted
woman not care what her haters think, but if she had a full life of
her own, when would she find the time? She claims to have a
career, but she doesn't have a job. She doesn't seem to have
any hobbies -- reading, gardening, crafting, sports, volunteering,
etc. And again, a mother of 8 who is not spending the majority
of her time as a taxi service is probably not putting her kids'
wants and needs first.

Kate is a twit said...

Celebrity Dirty Laundry has a recap of tonight's special:

http://www.celebdirtylaundry.com/2015/kate-plus-8-recap-51015-season-3-special-mothers-day-surprise/

I found this part very telling:

"Kate is anxious about the three boys becoming teenagers, she has always thought of herself as a “girly mom.” Kate is obviously a girl, so it is easier for her to raise girls. Over the years she has noticed that the boys’ communication skills are not up to par with the girls – but what she loves about them is there is no drama and they just go with the flow. The girls are constantly arguing with her over every little thing, and they scream when they don’t get their way. Kate laughs that when you are raising girls, “the world is ending every other second and it is exhausting.”

The boys' communication skills are not "up to par" with the girls? Nice thing to say about your sons. They probably learned a long time ago to not speak for fear of punishment, and with the way the girls scream and yell, they wouldn't be able to get a word in edgewise anyway.

I still remember in the special last year, how Collin said something about one of the girl's hair and Kate chastised him on national TV. The boys have learned not to cross Kate or the girls, hence the reason they go with the flow and not cause drama.

Jumping In said...

I don't have TLC, yet not even curiosity would have had me tune in tonight if I did have that channel. The reason is just as Amin. pointed out and that is Kate's predictability is an absolute guarantee. She offers nothing of interest, is transparent, shallow and disingenuous. She is a tape that just keeps repeating itself. I would, however like to hear the ratings as I really believe she is finally fading away.

Wow-serious rewriting of history! 24/7. It was just TFW on her own...not only is Jon dead, he never existed at all.

Anonymous said...

(Leslie)
Yes, I watched it. It was a lot of the same clips of the all the kids when they were very young and adorable. Kate was narrating the whole thing at usual which was boring too. And the girls cooking was boring with a lot of raising their voices and Mady being rude and bossy. Mady made a comment that Kate receives a lot of emails saying how rude she is. And Mady's response was she is NOT that rude! WOW! And then she proceeds to be rude the entire episode.

The really big thing that pissed me off was Kate said in the house (where they filmed before where they lived) SHE did EVERYTHING my herself. She made several comments to this effect. There were zero clips with Jon in them. I am truly baffled how she thinks she can get away with his. Millions know that they know that Jon was very present in that house. And that he was there for all the filming during that time. And that he even quit his job during that time to be at home 24/7 to help raise the kids. Yet Kate made zero references to this. She said it was all her.

And in the end all the kids were surrounding her as she read her cards and ate the breakfast they prepared for her. And it was so sad and real how she commented how strange it was. All of them together in one room not FIGHTING. This speaks volumes to me. Obviously they all still fight all the time and don't spend time together in the same room.

So, what exactly did the kids do for their birthday? I hope they saw Jon because it sounds like there was nothing else going on besides watching themselves on tv all damn day long.

Vanessa said...

Thar' she blows!!! She would have been better off not speaking at all. Now she's reopened that can of worms
It was like she this long list of alllllllll the "lies" that have been told about her and she was going to address them alllllllll.
- it was just "ME" all alone, all the time, every day, day in and out, just ME
you got it??
- only had ONE helper in allll that time and the ONLY thing she did?? pfft it was just folding laundry (convenient that she has passed away isn't it?)
- potty training was so EXCRUCIATINGLY DIFFICULT ON MEEEEEE
- boys are stupid, dumb, they do not verbalize, they're slow, immature, basically they are IDIOTS, but BUT they do have ONE redeeming quality
THEY ALWAYS DO WHAT I ORDER THEM TO DO, isn't that nice?
- girls are the intelligent beings on this planet, they are more mature, more helpful, basically superior BUT THE DRAMA AND YELLING, the eye rolling, the attitude, the bossiness....I just "don't get it"
-95% of her talking was how awful those kids are, how hard it is with TWO SETS OF MULTIPLES,that NOBODY can or should take her to task because of this ONE specific disability SHE has
-GOD CHOSE HER for this, basically she was put on this earth for this ONE REASON
- how hard it is to be THE one and only tf"F"woJG

She can specifically rhyme off EVERY SINGLE THING that annoys her about each and every one of those kids and it's 100% what THEY DO TO HER
You can really see how she's sunk deeper and deeper into her narcissism.

OH and ZORRO! Did you guys see how Alexis was manhandling him??
It made me cringe, twisting his little head (and I am NOT exaggerating, he's not made of playdoh!) wtf???

AND getting them to massage her EFFING FEET!! My mother used to make me massage her arms....I can't imagine the repulsion mixed with pride and "feeling loved" (eye roll) because of, firs of all the FEET?! need I say more?? and that she's actually being warm and nice. VERY CONFUSING you could see it in the boys faces, camera caught it perfectly with Aaden.

I could go on, sooooooooo much bullshit and mental fuckery going on in that house. It was like an EDITED (imagine how much of her yak yak yaking they cut out) closing argument for someone on trial.

Mady was happy as a bee..she got to be in charge, and also got lots of face time on camera. My hearing isn't so hot, but is it just me, or is she really hard to understand when she talks? For one thing, she talks way too fast. Kate whispered to the one boy "Did you wash your hands good with soap?" She didn't ask any of the girls that, but then, they aren't dirty like the boys are.

TLC stinks said...

A free 40th birthday in Mexico...and yet she is piecin' and patchin'. WTH.

Sad but true said...

From ROL's crap du jour:

“I went to nursing school so I could have better knowledge to take care of my kids and so I could support them if need be,” she explained. “That was the sole reason I went."

So according to this, then, she never planned on supporting her kids, be they one or eight. In her own words, it was only "if need be." Her "sole reason" for going to nursing school was NOT because she had any true vocation or interest, she thought of it as mommy prep. She wasn't interested in a career.

I must say, the ton of horseshit that drips from that mouth on a daily basis should easily be enough to fertilize all 26 of her glorious acres. We have heard so many versions of her "reality," it's become clear that her plan for staying in the limelight is to baffle them with bullshit. Nothing will ever stick because everything she says is open to constant revision depending on the degree of blowback or the direction of the wind. Bravo, Katie, bravo. You know, you really should sign up for a SAG card--I hear the money's better.

Huh? Wait, wasn't she in nursing school before the children were born or even before she met Jon?! How would she even assume she'd have one kid let alone eight? You're 19 years old in nursing school, very few 19 year olds are thinking that far ahead, or that responsibly, you're not programmed that way when you're that young. I spent 7 years in college and never once heard somebody say I'm doing this to support my future family. Young people just aren't thinking like that yet.

Come off it, she went to nursing school to bag a doctor. Now that's something an immature 19 year old might think. Get real.

Double "huh?". I thought Kate was convinced she wouldn't be able to have children.
She's said that innumerable times.
I swear she's sinking further into insanity.
She's still trying to explain away why she's never going back to nursing.

I didn't watch, but it seems to me that she's spending more and more camera/basement throne time spinning her image, and I don't get why TLC continues to encourage, let alone waste time airing it.

So TFW became a nurse so she could support her children "if need
be?" Was she planning on giving birth to kids or hydroponic plants? Earning a living for your family isn't optional. Unless, of course,
you were counting on marrying a rich dude who would take care of
all of you. Yeah, that's starting to make a lot more sense.

According to Kate, she always was in love with the idea of having lots of babies, and that's why she became a nurse, so she could better take care of her future children. Right!

Formerly Duped said...

Well, I'll admit I watched some of the special, between changing the sprinklers for our new lawn to pass the time (it's so hot here I am worried it won't take) Here's a little summary for you:

Mady was the 'stah of this show. She was exactly like Kate: sarcastic, rude, bossy, insulting of others, eating up attention. I don't really blame her- she is just imitating her mother I guess.She said the worst day of her life was when the tups were born and she still dislikes them.(She has glasses now too)

Kate made comments about raising her kids, how boys are slower developmentally and also mentioned their poor toilet hygiene.The kids all rarely get along although certain groups of 2's and 3's do.


The girls all helped make the meal Kate had 'no idea' about while she stood outside her bedroom which is right next to the fridge almost- bra strap showing. Collin got to set up a card-making station. It was a little odd how he sorted the crayons and paper in 'rainbow order' He did a good job anyhow. The other boys gathered eggs and set up tulips for Mommy..Alexis helped Cara while Leah and Hannah made fruit salad (those two girls have pierced ears now)

Kate was duly surprised and allowed massages of her neck and feet (boys' job) afterwards.

More later if I think of anything. Not so much fighting in this special- Mady saw to that- she was really mean "You'll do what I say when I ask you to do something." Echos of mommy....


I agree the nursing school comment was weird and really insulting to nurses and others alike.

Yup, that's been pretty well documented by the words of her friends and co-workers. She was looking to bag a doctor so she wouldn't have to support herself, much less any kids she might have.

Oh brother! How does Milo know whether Kate is running or on her treadmill or hitting the gym or not? And why does Milo think Kate needs Milo to "stay on her" about it? And what's the point of including TLC in the tweet? "We" have to get you back to running? "We"?? This woman is off-the-charts nuts. Please pass the pepto bismol!

In the second tweet, don't most people say, "to go to bed ON?" Like "that was a nice note to go to bed on." Going to bed WITH the episode just sounds ... wrong, creepy. I think Auntie Ann is onto Milo's true warm and fuzzy feeling!

Virginia Pen Mom said...

I'm not a big fan of when mothers like Milo and Kate, and others, act like this is a high holy day to worship his high holiness Saint Mother. Don't dare fall short of their expectations or there's hell to pay today or at least a lot of sulking.

You are a mother. Not Jesus. Or a martyr either.

Think about this huge disconnect.

She has insisted, absolutely insisted, over and over, that there is no point to her going back to nursing because her babysitting/childcare costs would cancel out anything she does.

So if nursing is this great thing she did to support her family, such a wonderful and responsible career path, how was it that it was worth shit when the rubber actually met the road and she needed childcare?

I agree, she is insane.

Also holy 1950's batman.

How about going to nursing school because you want to better your life, take part in a noble profession, use your talents to help others, push yourself, challenge yourself, and embrace a respectable career as a young woman?

I love it, I am going to support my nonexistent family. Well you could go to a trade school for much cheaper and make just as much money if that's your true goal.

Vanessa said...

She is the epitome of abuser. She is the poster child
She was addressing all the accusations of abuse by using classic abuser behavior. It was all code. Blaming the victims (kids), her stress, her situation (which she orchestrated) her circumstances, the kids not knowing how to behave to her expectations.
Mady is on that same path

FlimsyFlamsy said...

If so many of us have a "WTF" reaction to TFW's insane comments,
can you imagine how it feels to be one of the people she kicked to
the curb? Obviously Jon comes to mind first when you think of how
ridiculous it is that she claims to have done it all herself. But what
about people like Beth and Jodi, who opened up their hearts and
homes (and probably their wallets) to TFW and her children?
Jodi took care of all 8 kids every Friday (along with her own),
and "wore them out" so they could go home and nap for 3 hours.
And now it's as if she never existed. I agree -- TFW's delusions
are crossing over into cray-cray territory. It won't end well.

Chew on this. If her kids were removed from her custody and she were telling all that gobblygook to a therapist who is making recommendations to the court, they would say she is failing to take responsibility, minimizing her behavior, and would recommend the children not go home.

Absolutely. I can just imagine what breaking up with her would be like, or cutting ties with her, or estranging her.

She probably spouts her usual rewriting of history i.e. I did everything in this relationship, you always came first, this or that thing I did was for YOU.

And you're sitting there wondering if the life you've lived was a fantasy or if she's just insane.

I also think it would drive the kids nuts to get in an argument with her knowing they're right but have her just spout stuff off like it actually is true.

Good luck to the kids when and if they decide to cut ties. They're going to just have to change their number and address, there will be no use in explaining it to her. Just cut her off, anything else will go nowhere.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

Yeah, ugh.

Fortunately child abuse is sort of a strict liability thing. It doesn't matter if you were stressed, or insane, or on drugs, or whatever.

If the kids were hurt they were hurt, and there is no use trying to give excuses for why you did it. That actually only hurts your case.

She EXCUSES her bad behavior instead of taking responsibility for it, and that just proves she has learned absolutely nothing since she last beat those babies. She'd beat them again if she could get a hold of them. Fortunately they are too big and quick now.

Sorry you had to watch the whole thing, I was think last night of watching K8 later when ratings don't count, but sometime before Man from ncle ended, I fell asleep and woke up at 1:30am.

Just from my commercial breaks, I had the same thinking:

It was all a bunch of BS of Kate and Kate trying to re-write history. Using the poor single me BS. Yes, Kate did not mention Jon, or the fact a thankyou to TLC, for everything,cause, without TLC she would not have gotten things or had those, birthdays or trips. It was sooo scripted, it reeked.

It looks as if the early comments to the special are a lot of negative, so far. You can't fool everybody Kate, only yourself.

That's the thing, her parenting style is not going to fly with teens.

Things are already out of control there, but it will get worse. I'm betting she will give up on trying to get control of them, and they'll be ruling the roost over there. They'll be coming and going as they please and doing whatever they want and they will learn pretty darn quick Kate can't do anything about it.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

What's this too about how she went to nursing school to take better care of her kids. Is she implying medically??

There's an easier path to that one too. Take all the first aid and CPR courses the Red Cross or your local hospital offers. Pay attention, and memorize all the steps to do in various emergencies. Then keep a basic first aid kit around. You'll spend under 100 bucks. Seriously, there's not much more you can do in an emergency. A nurse can't just bust out her medical bag and starting giving stitches in the woods, you need prescription drugs for infections and the like. This isn't Doctors without Borders for pity sake. Call 911 in an emergency and let the team of professionals handle it, don't be stupid.

All due respect to nurses and even doctors who are off duty but unless you are specifically working in the field, and covered by insurance to be in the field, etc., the best thing to do in an emergency is apply basic first aid and call 911. Don't start getting all Medicine Woman out there, it's reckless and stupid. In rare, rare cases there might be a nurse or doctor who has to deliver a baby on a plane because you can't land for two more hours, but that is a one in a million situation. Just call 911 in any other situation.

Well, despite going to nursing school, Kate did not manage with Leah's cut forehead, Hannah's migraines ( gave her medicine she would throw up) the vomitous boys (laundry room), opening windows in winter weather, or her ill advice to tweeties.Her kids are always sick and she does not know the difference between a bacterial and viral infection .

Wonder if they gave her a choice, the show is for the tups bday or mothers day?

She can't carry a show or interest without them so she takes the spotlight the only way she can and has them be her personal cheerleading team
Win win for her

It is totally UNFAIR that this wretched woman is paid by TLC to have a public stage to spew her distortion of history and lies. So, so unfair to Jon, and everyone that has helped her over the years. Can't wait to read the recap.

As far as Mady, I doubt she is popular in school. I guess she is quite taken with herself. Wow. What a bossy creature.

Anyone with *common sense* can raise a child and identify health concerns and deal with them. You don't need a degree.

It appears she uses her nursing degree as an excuse to brush off their real health concerns and complaints. "Oh, you're fine!"

Like seeing much worse in a hospital setting makes it okay that your child is uncomfortable.

I take no pleasure from saying this but it needs to be said - odds are high that there will be drug abuse in those kids' future. There will be depression and some of them will probably have suicidal tendencies if someone doesn't step in to stop this circus and force Kate get help for herself and her children. There needs to be a serious intervention there. There is nothing funny about watching eight kids get fucked over by a narc, a bodyguard and a television network.

What was she, four?

I'm sure Kate was sending off plenty of negative energy and making comments that the astute four year old was picking up on.

Had it been framed to her as a positive and fun thing she probably would have coped with it a lot better.

And also, at her age she needs to learn to knock off all those mean and nasty comments. It's not okay anymore. She knows better. It's not okay to say such mean things about your siblings. She is their big sister and they're supposed to look up to her and she hasn't been taught to be responsible about that role. I suspect Kate doesn't stop her because she thinks it's funny and conflict brings in ratings. Also it's in Kate's best interest the children don't band together, so I believe her sick self does not discourage discord among the eight. I truly do.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

How does Mady even know people are "concerned" about her? That is hardly appropriate for kate to be discussing such things with her. She shouldn't know there is a problem.

Also at fourteen, you are far too young to know whether your reality is something concerning or not. She's too young. She will understand when she's older exactly what her life has been about and have opinions then. Child safety, comfort, and well being is for adults to assess, not children.

Formerly Duped said...

I think Kate said they do this intense clean-up every evening. but that's not what the Chore Chart says- certain kids do kitchen jobs and the boys do the chickens and bathrooms? No cleaning person my left foot!!!

MikeB said...

If she was learning nursing so she could take care of her kids, why did Jon have to handle Collin's impacted colon on national TV? The poor child was crying because he was so uncomfortable. Something like that should be a walk in the park for a trained nurse.

Oh, that's right. She's lying again. She hates any kind of medical issues because they are messy and interfere with her other plans. Filming comes first.

TLC stinks said...

Wowser, hopefully tomorrow we will know the ratings.

Kate is a twit said...

I just watched the show on VOD. Everyone here has basically covered it all. I did find it a bit strange when one of the girls tups was surprised that Kate was coming out to eat. Why did she think Collin was setting the table for her?

Kate, the twins and the girl tups put down the boys a lot. When Kate said that the "boys' communication skills were not up to par with the girls", I wanted to slap her right through the TV.

Then she said(about the boys) "they look at you with glazed over eyes and you're like 'are they hearing me-do they understand?'"

Funny, that's almost exactly what she wrote in her journal about Joel--" I hope he got the message… I can’t be sure though with his glazy look in his eyes when I talk!!!!!"

Did she re-read her journal and takes notes to get talking points for this special?

I did like when Collin was asked how he learned to set a table, and he said "I didn't learn it, I saw it at a restaurant. I observed it." He sounded more articulate that Kate has ever sounded. Kate's communication skills are definitely not up to par with the boys.

After talking about potty training the tups, she said she was glad when that was over, and then added about the boys "Now if I could just get them to hit the toilet when they pee and flush it, we'd be really good. Years later we are still working on that".

WTF, Kate?

Kate also said she gets "chest pains" when she's stressed, and was having them right then just thinking about all the stress she's been through. Last time, it was the "stress disease" AKA shingles, now it's chest pains brought on by stress. Um, maybe she should go see a doctor or take some stress management classes.

Oh by the way, Kate did make sure to fit in a line about her weeks on bed rest. You knew that would be in there somewhere.

So Jon is dead, the boys are still "icky", Mady is the new Kate-in-training and Kate is Mother Teresa. That about sums it up.

TLC stinks said...

The Jon bashing in the Radar comments suggests the minions are out in force. I get the feeling that her ratings won't be the good only because people had better things to do and watch Sunday evening. TLC offered nothing, nada, that was new regarding Kate.

Now about that Mexico vacay/filming. That is just over the top. She'll pass it off as she decided to do something special for the big 4-0.

Kate is a twit said...

I noticed in the preview for the birthday show, that Deanna accompanied them. Guess Emily and Jamie couldn't make it. They also showed Kate and Deanna going out to a club for Kate's birthday. Hmm, where have I seen that before?

Let's throw tomatoes said...

Thank God I didn't watch last night ! By what I read on Radar, Kate's fans tweets, and comments here it's enough. Kate and TLC are insulting the intelligence of the viewing public. All of a sudden Kate is Mother Teresa ! A loving, wonderful, unselfish, hardworking, self-sacrificing, devoted mother who has sacrificed her own life for her kids. What??!! Does that mean the last 10 years have been a dream???? Or is it pure bullshit and Kate/ TLC are rewriting history and think we are a bunch of dummies who are going to fall for it. Well, I guess some dummies already have, a fan tweeted Kate apologizing for misjudging her, and Kate's response was over the top obnoxious.

And as far as Maddy taking over that explains why TLC has been tolerating Kate for the last few years, what they really want is to get their claws on the kids. I guess Kate is slowing and reluctantly turning the reins over to them. It's probably because she has come to realize that it's that or nothing.

BTW , thanks PA Dutch Mom for responding the other day about " hate". I had a sleepless night of tossing and turning but at least some common questions I have always had about why people are the way they are were kinda answered. It's a little disheartening because change is not going to happen as quickly as I would like. But I refuse to like abusers " a little less then other people". Sad.

I cannot believe someone would even make the statement that they went to nursing school so they would be able to take of their children (nonexistent children at the time, BTW). She is the first nurse, former or present, that I have known to make such a ridiculous statement. Frankly, she has not one personality trait, skill or smarts to be a competent nurse. Quite scary that she graduated a nursing program.

Oh yes, that's exactly what works best on teens -- constantly "recalibrating their moral values" each and every day. If you haven't yet instilled (by example and gentle guidance) strong moral values in your kid by the time they hit 14, 15 years old -- well, you've missed the dang boat. However, I do agree that the teen years can be very "iffy" at times because teens are going through a lot of changes and hormonal stuff. I am so thankful that I was able to end my work day at 2:30 and be able to pick up my son after school, shuttle him to whatever practice he had, and otherwise just "be there" during those afternoons and evenings with him. Not to "recalibrate" his moral values on a daily basis, but to simply be paying attention to what was going on in his life, to listen when he felt like talking, and to keep an eye out for any trouble that might be brewing.

And Zorro has an instagram account? Boy, that's scraping the bottom of the barrel, even for Kate. What's next? Will she set up an instagram account for some of the chickens, so we can hear the latest from the hen house?

So that your constant harping about morals and values just pushes them away and makes them rebel. Milo and Kate sound like the most overbearing parents of teens ever. It simply doesn't work. Believe it or not, teens think for themselves and have their own darn opinions and beliefs about "values". Some of them may develop values different than Kate and Milo, and that's not necessarily wrong. Give them a chance to figure out who they are without breathing down their necks. I really can't imagine how much this parenting style is going to backfire on Kate. It'll be epic.

Layla said...

If K+8 does not get stellar ratings, then there is a problem. TLC gave her the prime 8pm time slot, did a K+8 marathon leading up to it, and promoted the heck out of this show. Every other commercial for the past few weeks has been about the Mother's Day specials. This is the chance she wanted to "hit it out of the ballpark". TLC delivered on a golden platter, but now the burden is on her to produce. If the ratings aren't huge, then they will have to face the fact that her glory days are over, once and for all. There really isn't anything more they could ever possibly do for her. We'll know soon enough.
In other news, I saw that the Duggar special with Jill's new baby got something like 3 million viewers.

Maybe it helps just to vent a little bit? However, I'd say to anyone who is letting Kate and her antics get under your skin to the point where your blood pressure is going up -- step back, enjoy your life, your family and friends and count your blessings. There's no point in letting a stranger upset you, especially when there is nothing you can do about it, besides chatting here. This is a great place to snark on Kate and point out her phoniness, but I've had to take a break from time to time and it really did help me regain my equilibrium :)

Not long ago there was a Blind Gossip about a woman who was shopping a reality show to TLC. This person had a whole bunch of ideas for the series. TLC thought she looked really good but were concerned about advertisers and ratings. Most people thought it was Kate Gosselin . Maybe TLC was nervous because Robert's book had just come out, BTW, I still can't believe that he never promoted that book.

So yea it was Kate . TLC tested the waters and ratings were decent so they signed her up. The ideas for shows: Free trip to Maine, kids love love love mommy on Mothers Day and a lovey -dovey trip to Mexico for her 40th with Steve, sorry I meant her kids!!

So all of Kate's dreams come true because of ratings!!!! I can't think of a more deserving person! NOT

Kate also mentioned Hannah and Collin rarely get along so she has to pre-arrange seating for trips.Alexis has been shunned. Mady dislikes the tups most of the time. Cara is an eruption waiting to happen as seen in the other recent specials..We've seen squabble and TFW who rarely intervenes, seems to take the girls' side when she does.I must say, the boys seem the most likeable members of that family.H is an up- and -coming Mady, with L not far behind.The girls seem mean- I hate to say negative things about children, but they appear rude, entitled and disrespectful, on top of their petty fights with their siblings.I honestly think Kate is getting frightened of them- she mentioned her stress and not thinking ahead- what happened to her motto?- to when they are all teens.

If Milo can read "Mommy's Journal' (which Kate copyrighted) and still praise this biotch all day long, then she's gotta be a paid crony. Surely to pete there can't be someone so damn stupid.

And dang, Milo has a son (supposedly). She ought to be pissed that Kate keeps saying how icky boys are. Them's fightin' words! lol

I noticed in the preview for the birthday show, that Deanna accompanied them. Guess Emily and Jamie couldn't make it. They also showed Kate and Deanna going out to a club for Kate's birthday. Hmm, where have I seen that before?

On the last special I think Deanna might have done her hair and make up. I didn't watch last night so don't know if she's still doing it but my guess would be yes and because she was already there she got to go clubbing.

I take no pleasure from saying this but it needs to be said - odds are high that there will be drug abuse in those kids' future. There will be depression and some of them will probably have suicidal tendencies if someone doesn't step in to stop this circus and force Kate get help for herself and her children. There needs to be a serious intervention there. There is nothing funny about watching eight kids get fucked over by a narc, a bodyguard and a television network.

Auntie Ann,
I have feared this for a long time. Just wait until she raises her hand to one of them in a few years. She better have the police department on speed dial and makes sure that they have the code to the gate.

Yes. She's a girly mom, boys are slow, have poor language skills, are dirty, urinate on the floor. They may, however, rub her Flintstone feet.The old clips of the boys were not flattering.Actually not many of the old clips were!

This is the chance she wanted to "hit it out of the ballpark".

I only saw the last few minutes of it....but hitting it out of the ballpark it wasn't.

Beyond boring. Just TFW droning on, blathering about how it's not the kids' fault that she never gets a break.

Waddya mean she never gets a break??? The woman is never home.

All this talk about Kate separating the kids that don't get along reinforces my idea that she is the worst person to have had kids. It's her job as a mother to help them build strong loving relationships that will follow them through adulthood. WTH ! Unless she's lying and all those kids get along great, I feel sorry for them.

I'm speaking from experience. My mother was a lot like Kate. If they continue with these attitudes it's going to affect their relationships as adults.

I want to go back to this: #Kateisababy/puppyabuser
